Cream Cheese Chocolate Chip Cookies

Ingredients

2 ¼ cup flour

1 teaspoon baking soda

1 teaspoon salt

¾ cup butter, room temperature (1 ½ sticks)

¼ cup cream cheese, room temperature (I used Neufchatel cheese.)

½ cup granulated sugar

1 cup brown sugar

2 teaspoons vanilla

2 eggs

2 cups chocolate chips (I used dark chocolate chips.)

Directions

In a bowl, whisk together flour, baking soda, and salt.  Set aside.

In a stand mixer, beat butter, cream cheese, and sugars until light and fluffy.

Beat in vanilla and eggs.

Slowly add in flour mixture until combined.

Stir in chocolate chips.

Note:  It is best to allow cookie dough to cool in the fridge for at least 2 hours or longer.   

When ready to bake, preheat oven to 375 degrees F. 

Drop the cookie dough by tablespoonfuls, well apart, on baking sheets. 

Bake for 10 minutes or until lightly browned.  Allow cookies to cool on baking sheet for 2 minutes then transfer to a wire rack to cool completely.

Makes 3 dozen cookies.
